Did you even adjust the front derailluer
I have not use this same set up, but I have replaced many crank sets and had little troubble getting the chainline set back up to shift, generally I am upgrading to XT and I will say the better chain rings sure do shift really well .hitek79 said:So I took the Deore crank off my wife's Pitch and installed a new SLX crank, but now I'm having trouble getting it to shift properly. The old Deore crank had one spacer installed on the drive side, so that's what I did this time, and that's no bueno. I can't get the derailleur to throw the chain far enough to ramp up on to the middle chain ring. Anyone else have this set up? Am I missing something?
Chain rings are aligned correctly, and the derailluer looks like it's aligned correctly.kelstr said:Stupid question , ---did you make sure the chain rings were on and alighned correctly on the new crank's-?
Also you can generally tell if the chainline is to far away from the derailer because it looks funny .
Can you over throw the derailer and get it to grab the pins ?
